1. Bake a Mickey Mouse cake

2. Or, for bite-sized treats, serve Mickey Mouse cake pops to your guests instead

Mickey Mouse cake pops are shockingly easy to decorate, with the process mostly consisting of dipping the cake in melted candy and chocolate and adding on a couple of simple decorations. But the end result is absolutely adorable, so it’s definitely worth the effort to execute this Mickey Mouse party idea!

3. Hang up a Mickey Mouse piñata

No matter what age group your guests fall into, having planned activities at your party is one of the best ways to keep your guests engaged and encourage everyone to socialize with one another. If the activity also happens to be a perfect fit for the theme, that makes it an ideal Mickey Mouse party idea! You can find lots of Mickey Mouse piñatas for sale at various party supply stores, but we like this one from Party City in particular because it’s extra colorful and well-reviewed.

4. And hang a Mickey Mouse banner for an easy yet festive addition

We can’t recommend just one banner, since there are so many options out there that would work well for different parties, color schemes, etc. But Etsy offers a huge selection of reasonably affordable Mickey Mouse banners to choose from, so be sure to check those out!

5. Play “Pin the Nose on Mickey”

“Pin the Tail on the Donkey” is a classic party game for a reason (it’s fun and frankly hilarious to watch), but it’s not quite right for a Mickey Mouse party. That’s why we’re recommending you purchase this amazingly affordable game of “Pin the Nose on Mickey” from Amazon, which even comes with a pair of blindfolds so you have one less thing to worry about purchasing for your party.

6. Make your own Mickey Mouse party games

Sure, you can always buy Mickey Mouse party games. But if you’re on a budget, or you’re simply a fan of crafting and DIY projects, then making your own might be preferable! Here are eight such games that you can make yourself.

7. Include a Mickey Mouse photo booth

Although we love the modern-day Mickey Mouse, the older designs for Mickey are also adorable, and they’re a great choice if you’re going for more of a retro vibe at your party. 

11. Rent a thematically appropriate party venue as the location of your Mickey Mouse party

In case you weren’t already aware, Peerspace is the largest online marketplace for renting event venues (and virtually all kinds of spaces) by the hour.

As the leading platform of its kind, Peerspace can help you discover tens of thousands of amazing, unique spaces in hundreds of cities throughout the United States, Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and beyond.

Here, we’re highlighting a few examples of thematically appropriate, U.S.-based party venues for a Mickey Mouse party:

  • This stylish, Disney-themed family unit in Kissimmee, Florida is located only 10 miles from all the Disney parks, which makes the theme especially fitting. It is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with 1,071 square feet that’s described as having space for up to 10 people. So if you’re throwing a smaller Mickey Mouse-themed party, it might be a great fit!
  • This is another Disney-themed home, also in Kissimmee, but with more of an emphasis on Mickey Mouse in particular. However, Mickey isn’t the only decor feature here—some of the rooms are decorated with inspiration from Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, Mario and Luigi, and other timeless characters. You’ll have access to a projector that’s perfect for watching Mickey Mouse cartoons and Disney movies, and there’s even an outdoor pool area, so you can make your Mickey Mouse party a pool party! 
  • This midcentury masterpiece in Palm Springs, California has a very different feel than our other examples. It used to belong to the iconic actor and racing driver Steve McQueen. It’s full of authentic historic details like original ceilings, vintage outdoor furniture, McQueen’s punching bag, and more. There’s no denying that it’s an ideal choice for a Mickey Mouse party when you learn that there’s a Mickey Mouse-shaped pool in the backyard, which also contains lush citrus, palm, and olive trees with a backdrop of breathtaking mountain views. What an amazing find!

Now that you know what kind of Disney-inspired spaces are out there, why not search Peerspace yourself to find the venue of your dreams? (Be sure to use Peerspace’s array of intuitive filters to narrow down your search, ensuring that you don’t have to waste time scrolling past tons of listings that aren’t a good fit.)

12. Have a make-your-own Mickey Mouse/Minnie Mouse ears station

Remember: Mickey ears are the classic pair of black, circular ears, while Minnie ears are distinguished by a red bow with white polka dots. Offer guests the opportunity to make their own sets of Mickey/Minnie ears, providing the necessary materials, instructions, and a space to work on their DIY projects. Here’s an especially easy guide to making your own.

Speaking of Minnie, these sweet Minnie Mouse party ideas can serve as the theme to your sequel party!

13. Alternatively, buy Mickey/Minnie Mouse ear headbands and give them out to guests

You can buy Mickey and Minnie ears in large packs if you’d prefer not to have your guests make their own. Here’s a pack of 20 ear headbands —half Mickey, half Minnie—that cost less than a dollar each on Amazon. Be sure you buy extra to ensure you don’t run out!

14. Better yet, have a thematic dress code, so guests show up in costume

On your party invitations, consider adding a dress code (required or optional—it’s up to you!) to have your guests arrive at your party in costume. Having everyone in attendance arrive at your party wearing Mickey Mouse or Disney-related costumes cultivates a festive atmosphere with relatively little effort. This is why it’s one of our top Mickey Mouse party ideas.

15. Take advantage of all the free Mickey Mouse printables out there

Since Mickey Mouse is so popular, there are tons of free Mickey Mouse printables available online that you can use for decor at your party! For example, these party printables offer thematically appropriate labels for food, party favors, etc.

16. Give out Mickey Mouse party favors to your guests as they leave

These kinds of party favors are certain to be a big hit with kids, but might not be as appealing to older guests, so we’d say that this is a better Mickey Mouse party favor idea for kids’ parties. Here are 10 excellent suggestions for Mickey Mouse party favors to consider.

17. Decorate red Solo cups with Mickey’s white buttons

Looking for the simplest decor option imaginable, but one that’s still incredibly cute? We love the idea of adding white dots (with white paint, or—even easier—white stickers!) to the classic red Solo cups to evoke Mickey’s bright red pants. It’s an idea that’d work for kids’ and adults’ parties alike.
